This managed to rekindle my love for Spider-Man, which I thought it had been lost forever. I love the art and the Todd Mcfarlane era costume look, I love that MJ is back and I love that it seems we're getting soft "reboot" for Peter Parker to clean up all the clutter that just didn't make sense.

This continues to deliver a great story, gives us Mary Jane back (for now), the puns and jokes are appropriate, and the twist at the end keeps me guessing until the next issue comes out.

This feels like I'm back in the 90's reading my New Mutants/X-Force comics. For someone who has read that series this is awesome and a treat, but I do question if this isn't a bit confusing for someone who is picking the title for the first time. For me it's perfect, so I'm giving this high praise as easily a top ongoing Marvel series.

I honestly don't get what's was the idea with this. Second time we go back to the future, and this time without Cap even being there. Feels like they ran out of ideas and this is all just filler material waiting for Coates' run to start. Which is probably the case.

Poignant. Again another very promising series by Cates that grabs us right from the start. I can understand some people are upset about killing off Inhumans, but as a fan of the X-Men for over two decades, and I'm used to this and seems like it's time the Inhumans get their due.

Doctor Strange (2015) #390

Jun 9, 2018

Weird issue, especially considering it's the last one of the series before it "reboots". Spider-Man felt more like he was written as Deadpool and they changed at the last minute, and his whole cameo seemed like a running gag that overstayed its welcome just a few pages in. A weak ending overall, which is surprising after the superb ending of Cates' run on Thanos, so I expected something more substantial instead of just an OK filler issue.

Hunt For Wolverine: Mystery In Madripoor #2

Jun 27, 2018

This comic has some of my favorite X-Women and overall female comic book character reminiscing about their ties to one of my favorite male characters, Wolverine, so this series is a treat. The art could be a bit better in some places, and while the premise of the story is great, it drags a bit a certain points. Still, I'm really enjoying this and will miss it when it ends.

8.0
Hunt For Wolverine: Mystery In Madripoor #4

Aug 22, 2018

I'll start with the worst, the art is really weak in large portions of the book and sometimes it can be very distracting. Contrary to many, this was my favorite Hunt for Wolverine series and I really wanted to collect this on trade, but it's hard to justify paying the cover price with such low quality art. This issue, and maybe the whole story arc, was clearly just a way to streamline Psylocke's backstory so it can be accessible to new readers once the X-Men Universe gets a soft reboot with Extermination, followed by Uncanny X-Men #1. Her body switch story was incredibly convoluted (even for 90's standards), and even though she's been one of my favorites since the 90's and I grew up with Asian body Betsy Braddock, a lot of people found her story too complicated and/or problematic. It's sad that one of the most iconic Asian characters in comics is going away, but seems like for many it's for the best.

Loving the dark mood and the horror atmosphere this comic book is exuding. The Hulk's return in Avengers: No Surrender left me very hyped for this and so far it's delivering. He was always a character I only had mild interest on, but this is making a good case for me to pickup this run.

Ahhh I love the smell of a lecture in the morning. We get it Saladin Ahmed, you hate the US and apparently all European countries. As if that wasn't boring enough, the stylistic choice of using monochromatic tones for 2 issues feels like I'm being cheated out of some proper art and inking.

I've been loving the Death of Mighty Thor, but I can't help but feel that Jane staying alive risks undermining the gravitas of this story arc. She had a beautiful death by sacrificing herself to save Asgard, at long last proving herself worthy in the eyes of stubborn Odin, but by keeping her alive, they took the easy way out and significantly brought down the impact of the overall story. Still, the whole story arc was a 9/10 so a must have trade for fans, but if not for the ending, could have been a 10/10.

Jean is one of my favorite comic book characters of all time, I've collected a solid portion of her meaningful moments in comic book history and I was incredibly excited to have her back, but not like this... So far this run has been underwhelming and not even this issue with Gambit has been able to keep my initial hype for this. Even if you're like me that can overlook quite a bit of politics in comics, some of it on this run has been so on the nose and heavy handed with events specifically mirroring or referencing events in the current US political climate, which for a non-American not only makes it uninteresting at times, but also unfortunately it will likely ensure this run will not age well. There are some good things in this, which is why I'll push through and see how it goes when the full team is assembled.

Great issue, solid action and tension. The art and page setup style really complemented the action scenes. My only wish is that the story itself moved a bit faster, most issues have a lot of stuff going on, but we're seven issues in and the main plot is evolving very slowly and still feels miles away from concluding.
